For many years, Ralph Emery has welcomed country's biggest stars to Nashville's hottest shows, Nashville Now and The Ralph Emery Show. He has written two bestsellers, Memories and More Memories, which boast a combined total of more than thirty weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and sales of over four hundred thousand copies. Now the man who counts the industry's A-list as personal friends regales his readers with another fascinating update on country music's favorite personalities.
He fondly remembers the career and life of legendary Conway Twitty and chats with Twitty's widow about the dispute over the singer's will. He checks in with Loretta Lynn, her first in-depth interview since the death of her beloved husband. Emery takes us backstage with country's number one duo, Brooks and Dunn; has an intimate chat with the incomparable Brenda Lee; and includes stories about Colonel Tom Parker, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, Olivia Newton-John, Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, Vince Gill, Deana Carter, and many more. This is a one-of-a-kind tribute to a special town with a unique sound. The View from Nashville is a colorful and fully realized portrait of the country music business, deliciously spiced with the kind of insider savvy that won Ralph Emery no less than six Country DJ of the Year awards.
